A new gun shop has just opened.

Revis Flowers and son RJ Flowers have launched FS Tactical, at 3327 Cindy Lane in Englewood.

The “FS” in FS Tactical stands for Father- Son.

The Flowers started selling guns years ago at gun shows. RJ, who just graduated from a gunsmith school, began by working of friends guns and selling parts and accessories.

Dad Revis worked in the commercial fishing industry for 25 years, had a packing and shipping company and sells real estate.

Both are longtime gun guys.

“We’ve established relationships with about a dozen wholesalers and distributors,” Revis said. “They’re shipping as fast as the manufacturers can produce.”

The shop specializes in tactical firearms and accessories. Their concealed carry handguns include Shields, Bodyguards, LCPs and more, Revis said.

Most importantly, they have ARs.

As of Thursday afternoon, there were five in stock, from Wyndham Weaponry, Smith & Wesson and DPMS, RJ said.

They have Thermold AR and AK mags, retailing at $20 each.

“Ammunition is sparse,” RJ said.

FS Tactical has one AK pistol and a somewhat rare AK rifle made by the now-defunct Arsenal USA of Houston, Texas – not to be confused with the AK maker located in Las Vegas.

The store stocks a full line of Magpul accessories – enough to satisfy most tactical ninjas.

RJ can build custom ARs.

“That’s actually how I got started,” he said. “That’s what I hope to focus on.”
